How to make paper daffodils

What do you need:

  • our printable template (you can get it at the end of this tutorial)
  • construction paper or scrapbook paper in “daffodil” colors
  • green construction paper or scrapbook paper
  • glue
  • the scissors
  • pencil to trace the template

Step by step instructions

Print our model (you can retrieve it at the end of this tutorial). Cut out the pieces and trace the shapes on matching papers.

Trace the leaves on green paper, the flower on one of the “daffodils”, choose another darker “daffodil” shape for the spiral and yellow for the pistil. Cut out the parts, cut fringes on the small rectangle (see photo below).

Step 1 - Cut out the shapes

Let’s make the petal. Take the flower part and make folds between each petal.

2nd step

Apply a small amount of glue to the “half-petal” shape.

Step 3

Push the “half-petal” part with the glue under the left petal. This will create a flower shape.

Step 4

Now to make the inner petals. Take the spiral and start rolling it from the outside to the center.

When you reach the center, apply a small amount of glue to the end of the spiral and push it under the rolled “flower”. Hold together for a while for the glue to set. Now take the rectangle and roll it together in a small tube (glue!).

Dip the central part of the flower in a little glue and stick it in the part of the rolled petals.

Step 6

Apply a generous amount of glue in the middle of the large petal and press the small spiral petal onto the glue. Let the glue set.

Step 7The final touch

It’s time to make the paper daffodil even more whimsical. Bend each of the petals back a little.

Almost done

Grab the sides of the tip of each petal with two fingers and squeeze it. This will make a nice textured pointed tip.

Finishing detailsGlue a leaf or two to the bottom.

Finished! You have learned how to make paper daffodils. Paper daffodil craft with template

Don’t stick to one color, use a nice variety and make a whole bunch of wonderful paper daffodils.
